USPTO Releases Trademark Status and Document Retrieval

In August, the USPTO released version 2.0 of the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) system.  This past weekend, the USPTO started redirecting all direct links to the Trademark Application and Registration Retrieval System (TARR) to the TSDR.  Next, weekend, it will redirect all links to the Trademark Document Retrieval (TDR) system to the TSDR.  Eventually, the links to TARR and TDR will no longer be accessible.  So, you may wish to update your bookmarks.  If you haven’t visited the TSDR site yet, you may wish to consider doing so.  The system is very user friendly, with tabs separating the application status and document retrieval.  The status window provides a clear, concise status of the application, and drop down windows provide information about the mark, goods and services, filing basis, owners, attorney/correspondence, prosecution history, and trademark staff and location information.  The drop down functionality grants direct access to portions of interest, or the user can expand all windows to see all the application information.  And, everything is so well organized.  For example, you can directly access the Attorney/Correspondence Information and confirm that correspondence email is authorized to maintain the TEAS Plus status.  There is also a direct link that allows the user to access any TTAB proceedings associated with the application.  This welcomed change is long overdue.  For more information about the TSDR, see TSDR 2.0.
